Let's fix light rail overcrowding

The government has failed to increase services and carriages are now unacceptably overcrowded. It’s uncomfortable and could be dangerous.

Recently we had a big win -  after letters from local residents, meetings with the Transport Minister’s office and questions in Parliament, the government has agreed to increase services on the Inner West Line to address overcrowding.

But there's still more to do.

Please join me in calling on the government to invest in a long-term fix for overcrowding on the light rail:

Dear Transport Minister,

Please take urgent action and increase services to fix the chronic and unacceptable overcrowding on our light rail.

Signed,

    too much spent on roads ,doesn’t matter how many or high wide these roads you the govt build it all ends in traffic and our health suffers from the pollution and noise the health costs from pollution and road accidents I’m sure costs more money than fuel tax and tolls can ever raise

    Its definitely the answer to the Inner West transport woes, I would love to see more of it over Sydney, just imagine if the West Connect money had of been spent on a Sydney wide light rail system, it would have been world class

    I use light rail regularly to travel to work at a Museum. I am alarmed at the level of overcrowding on peak services…it would be impossible to fall over some days as people are so tightly packed, with little concern for personal space. Elderly and disabled travellers are particularly venerable.
